    		Last Call For Participation - RAID 98
          (also available at http://www.zurich.ibm.com/~dac/RAID98)
       First International Workshop on the Recent Advances in Intrusion
    	   September 14-15, 1998 Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium
    We solicit your participation in the first International Workshop on the 
    Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection (RAID 98). 
    This workshop, the first in an anticipated annual series, will bring 
    together leading figures from academia, government, and industry to talk 
    about the current state of intrusion detection technologies and paradigms 
    from the research and commercial perspectives. 
    Research into and development of automated intrusion detection systems 
    (IDS) has been under way for nearly 10 years. By now a number of systems 
    have been deployed in the commercial or government arenas, but all are 
    limited in what they do. At the same time, the numerous research and 
    prototype systems developed have been more engineering than scientific 
    efforts, with scant quantitative performance figures. As we survey the 
    field of automated intrusion detection, we are faced with many questions: 
    1.	What research questions have yet to be answered (or even
            asked) about IDS? 
    2.	What are the open challenges, limitations, and fundamental
            concerns about present intrusion detection methodologies? 
    3.	What metrics can we use to measure IDS performance and thus 
            compare different systems and methodologies? These
            measurements should highlight the successes and expose the
            limitations of current IDS approaches. 
    4.	What factors are inhibiting transfer of research ideas into 
            functional deployed systems? How can those be addressed? 
    5.	What is the role of a deployed IDS? How should or can it fit in 
            with other security systems? 
    6.	What are the typical IDS operating environments? What can be 
            done to configure IDS to unique operating environments?
    7.	What are the challenges for IDS in very large environments, such 
            as the Internet? 
    8.	Is it time to contemplate IDS standards? What are the advantages
            and disadvantages of standardizing components of IDS?
            What forums (e.g., IETF, ISO) would be appropriate for
            pursuing such standards? 
    9.	What are the problems of turning the results of intrusion
            detection tools into legally reliable evidence? What are the
            problems of admissibility and of courtroom presentation? 
    We invite proposals and panels that explore these questions or any other 
    aspect of automated intrusion detection. We especially solicit proposals 
    and panels that address: 
    1.	New results related to intrusion detection methodologies and 
    2.	Innovative ways of thinking about intrusion detection; for 
            example, the applicability of R&D in the fields of survivable
            and/or dependable systems, data mining, etc. 
    3.	User experiences and lessons learned from fielded intrusion 
            detection systems. 
    4.	IDS for emerging computer environments (e.g., Java, CORBA, and 
    5.      Commercial intrusion detection systems.
    We have scheduled RAID 98 immediately before ESORICS 98, at the same time 
    as CARDIS 98, and at the same location as both of these conferences. This 
    provides a unique opportunity for the members of these distinct, yet 
    related, communities to participate in all these events and meet and share 
    ideas during joined organized external events.

    The program committee invites proposals for both technical and general 
    interest talks and panels.
    Each talk or panel submission must contain:
    1)  A separate title page with:
          The type of submission (talk or panel);
          The title or topic; and
          The name(s) of the speaker or panel chair and probable
          panelists, with their organizational affiliation(s), telephone
          and FAX numbers, postal address, and Internet electronic mail
    2)  A brief biography of each participant.
    3)  The time desired for the talk or panel.
    Talk proposals must also include an abstract that is a maximum of 600 
    words in length. Papers are not required, but if included as an addendum, 
    will be used as supplementary information for the evaluation of the talk 
    proposal. The program committee will allocate each accepted presenter 
    either a 15 or 30-minute slot for the talk, based on the complexity and 
    interest of the proposed topic and the wishes of the speaker. The 
    presenter will be informed the slot length when notified of acceptance.
    Panel proposals must also include a description that is a maximum of 300 
    words, the format of the presentation, and short rationale for the panel. 
    The program committee will allocate accepted panel sessions one to 
    two-hour time slots, based on the complexity and interest of the proposed 
    topic, the number of panelists, and the wishes of the panel chair. The 
    panel chair will be informed the slot length when notified of acceptance.
    All proposals must be in English. Plan to give all panels and talks in 
    We must receive all proposals before June 15, 1998. We strongly prefer 
    they be submitted by e-mail to raid98at_private Various formats 
    (ASCII, postscript, Word, WordPro, Framemaker, and LaTex) are acceptable.
